Last year's Jailbreak raised £7,000 for Weston Hospicecare


CHARITY jailbreakers are being urged to perfect their begging, borrowing and blagging techniques ahead of Weston Hospicecare's second ever prison break fund-raiser.

The organisation is gaining a reputation for creating new and exciting events for the community to get involved in.

A fantastic £7,000 was raised at the charity’s first-ever Jailbreak, which was held in February, and saw more than 25 people break free from Burnham Police Station with the aim of getting as far away as possible.

Some teams made it abroad to Paris, Boulogne and Brussels, whereas others ended up in John O’Groats, Mansfield and Bridgwater.

Weston Hospicecare is now launching Jailbreak 2011 to give participants more time to plan their escape while raising as much money as possible.

The aim of the event is to get as far away from the station within a 24-hour period without spending a single penny.

An added twist in next year’s event is a points system, and people will get more points depending on where they end up.

Participants will be ‘arrested’ at 10am on April 23, and after completing a parole challenge, will be freed from the station’s cells to start the weekend adventure.

Teams must be made up of at least two people, aged 18 or over, and entry costs £10 per person.
